Aim High Health Acupuncture

A form of traditional Chinese medicine in existence for 3,000 years, acupuncture is used primarily for pain relief. Recognized by the U.S. National Institutes of Health for the many benefits it provides patients, it is covered by many health insurance policies and continues to become more popular each year with patients of various ages.


How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture is both a science and an art, one that has been around for over 3,000  years. It is an ancient form of Traditional Chinese Medicine, or TCM, that predates written history. It is believed there are invisible channels that run throughout the body.  These channels (think of a straw) act like a highway and allow for the free movement of energy to flow.  Along these channels there exist hundreds of acupuncture points.  The acupuncturist diagnoses and identifies the channel that's blocked and comes up with a treatment protocol and determines which acupuncture points would be best for the treatment. 


Acu What are the benefits of Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that involves the insertion of very thin needles (as thin as a human hair) into specific points on the body. Acupuncture has been shown to be effective in alleviating various types of pain, such as lower back pain, knee pain, and migraines. In addition to pain relief, acupuncture has been proven to have other benefits such as improved mental health, enhanced sleep quality, relief from allergies, and more. We only use sterile, single use needles. Side effects may include soreness, fatigue, and occasionally headaches.

How Many Treatments are Needed? 

This is hard to answer since the treatment needs of patients vary. In general, complex and long-standing chronic conditions require one or two treatments per week for several months. If you have acute problems or other special needs, an individualized treatment plan will be developed for you by the practitioner at Aim High Health during your first visit!

“Fire cupping therapy” is a traditional Chinese Medicine healing method. It involves heating up special cups with a fire source. The cups are applied to the skin in order to  create a vacuum which draws out toxins, improves blood flow and promotes healing. 

Vacuum cupping therapy is very similar to fire cupping therapy the difference being instead of using a heat source, a pump is used to create a vacuum.

"Muscle Release Therapy" (aka Gua Sha) is a traditional Chinese Medicine healing method which involves using a smooth rounded edged tool to scrape the muscle tissue.

Moxibustion therapy is a traditional Chinese Medicine healing method which consists of burning specially prepared and dried mugwort leaves on to or in close proximity to select acupuncture points. This invigorates the blood and infuses heat into the body along the channels being treated. It is useful for stimulating the flow of “Qi “(pronounced "chee"), putting heat into the meridians,  improving blood flow and maintaining general well being.
